Professor Moinester investigates questions concerning immigration, inequality, and health.
Margot Moinester is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Washington University in St. Louis. Her scholarship broadly examines how institutions and places structure patterns of inequality in American society. Her current projects span three main strands of research: (1) the determinants of expanded immigration enforcement in the U.S. interior; (2) the collateral consequences of the U.S. immigration enforcement system; and (3) refugee integration in the United States.
Margot's research has been supported by the American Bar Foundation, the National Science Foundation, and the Russell Sage Foundation and received multiple awards from the American Sociological Association and Population Association of America. She received her B.A. from Brandeis University and her M.A. and Ph.D. in sociology from Harvard University.
